Today I am finishing up my week of dinosaur content with two different fun dinosaur activities for kids. I have made a set of build-a- dinosaur puzzles and a dinosaur fossil matching game, which we like to set up as dinosaur x-rays, too!
Build -a- Dinosaur Puzzles
The dinosaur puzzles I made are so cute. My kids loved these! They have the dinosaurs cut up into parts and you have to assemble them on the mat with the matching name and picture of the dinosaur.
There are four different dinosaurs in this set: Triceratops, T-Rex, Brontosaurus and Stegosaurus. Each dinosaur is separated into 7 pieces: the head, body, tail and four legs.
These dinosaur puzzles will help kids to learn dinosaur names and also to match the pieces to the picture. They are great for preschool and early elementary aged kids.

Dinosaur Fossil Matching Game
This one is also tons of fun. I have been wanting to put a set like this together for a long time, and finally found a clip art that worked for what I had in mind!
We have this cool set of animal x-rays that my kids have played with for years and years. Also years ago, I made a set of animal skeleton matching cards. I wanted to make something similar for dinosaurs.
These Dinosaur Fossil Matching Cards include a set of 6 different dinosaurs and their matching skeletons or fossils.
The dinosaurs included in this set are: Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Pterodactyl, Brachiosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex & Parasaurolophus.
This can be used as a matching game, or you can use them to make dinosaur x-rays. This is what my kids liked best. Match the cards up with the regular dinosaur on the front and the skeleton on the back and hold them up to a bright window. You will be able to see the skeleton right through and it will look like an x-ray.
It’s a cool way so show kids what the dinosaur bones look like!
